2019 #VWEDU BIZ: Notes for the entrepreneurial educator.


#VWEDU Notes for the 
entrepreneurial educator.


The new breed of educator: Entrepreneurial.   Some of what educators do in the normal course of their work produces things and skills of value to other educators and to other educational institutions. Or those things would be of value if they were marketed

What is an entrepreneur? 

  • "Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which is often initially a small business."  -- Wikipedia 
  • Nothing about making a lot of money.
  • Nothing about quitting your day job.
  • It is all about initiative.  All about an enterprising person
  • Enterprisingmarked by an independent energetic spirit and by readiness to act.
  • Maybe just right for educators who develop useful products and skills.
  • Part time work is especially suited to educators who get laid off in the summer.
  • Especially since the internet lets people do business from home.
